Why did the rat cross the road?
I don't know, and apparently neither did he.
On the way home from work today, I had to slam on the brakes because a rat ran out in front of my car from the opposite side of the road. He got all the way across, took a look around, then turned around and ran right back to where he started. Perhaps he thought that things would be better over on the other side, and finally worked up the courage to run across... then found out that the other side of the street wasn't all he had hoped it would be.
I'm sure there's a lesson in there somewhere. Hopefully it involves looking both ways before crossing the street, because that rat very nearly became road kill.
Speaking of rats, I am fearing that the guest list may be slightly altered for Dave's Bad-Ass Blogography Show (whenever I get around to working on it again)...
I'll keep you posted.
Elsewhere in the blogosphere, SJ is forever coming up with cool list ideas for "Chronic Listaholic," but her current list idea is so cool that I'm going to steal it:
Ten Phrases I Hope To Say Someday...
Hmmm... I had a rant ready for today, but I want a slice of chocolate cake now. Maybe tomorrow.
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
Why didn’t you just run over the rat? I mean, it’s a rat.
Okay, that’s not nice. Sorry. I forgot you were a vegetarian. It was very nice of you to let the rat take his jaunt across the street and back.
Must give credit where credit is due: I stole this idea from my eau-bro, Sugarat, over at TheBlorg.
It’s too bad poor Liz doesn’t know what she’s missing out on . . .
I wish Dead Like Me would come back. I don’t know how much tequila the producers were drinking that night when they discovered the ratings number, but they must have gotten it horribly wrong…
I feel bad for rats. Everybody seems to hate them. I didn’t want to add to the poor guy’s lot in life by smashing him into the pavement and all.
I keep hoping that there will be a “Dead Like Me” wrap-up movie announced so we can see where it was all heading.
You asked, “Why did the rat cross the road”?…that’s easy!!!!!! The rat was in love with the chicken and would follow her anywhere!
